    It goes between the silver pipe coming in on the right of the egr and the egr body! I didnt bother blanking at the exhaust end. Undo allen bolts pull pipe back gently and slide blanking plate in bolts back in and tighten up! The egr is the biit with the flying saucer thing on...the inlet u need to blank is on the other side of it!

    What do you mean the inlet I need to blank is at the other side do you mean the other identical blank plate goes on the opposite end of the same pipe that I blanked ?

    Bit of a hijack just don't see point in new thread, is it possible just to take the whole egr out? Or is it too much hassle?

    How much they quoted to map? I've heard they just map the eml light out and don't actually delete the egr software, my cars booked in with them for DSG oil change
